New Phase for Arts & Culture, What’s To Do?

As we enter a new phase here within Arts & Culture/NYCGA and the occupation of wall street movement, new discussions and new occupations are being held. This weekend marks one of the many discussions that will help inform what we as artist have done since the 60s and a discussion as to what’s to do in the next phase of the movement:

Sunday November 20th
7pm @ 16 Beaver, NYC
Art, Work, and Occupation
discussion w/Gregory Sholette @gsholette

from the 16 Beaver website:
” The evening’s event will be a teach-in and discussion with artist, critic, and educator Gregory Sholette concerning the history of artistic engagements with the politics of work since the 1960s. While focused on past traditions and initiatives, the presentation will open onto a group discussion of more recent artistic, theoretical and political developments related to concepts such as precarity, post-Fordism, immaterial labor, the cognitariat, and what Greg himself has called ”dark matter.” This discussion will consider how these histories and concepts might be (re)activated relative to the Occupy movement, including but not limited to that of New York City as it enters a ”post-Zuccotti” phase following the eviction of November 15th. Report-backs and reflections from November 17th actions are more than welcome following Greg’s presentation.”
